You may contact an Endocrinologist because most probably you are suffering from more than usual secretion of Somatotropic Hormone (STH). This excess secretion can be controlled by an Endocrinologist. However, if it is hereditary, the physician will advise you not to take any abrupt measure to stop height growth.

Naturally you can't do anything to stop height. Only thing that opposes height growth is weight gain. And this way you are going to have issues with the health. So make sure that you gain weight as per your BMI index. Do note that if you go on exercising that gains weight, this also affects your growth of height. That's why you should definitely consider weight gain to obstruct the height increase.

You may consider following points-
1. Consult a doctor specialized in Endocrinology because abnormal increase in height is mostly due to hormonal imbalance.

2. I would like to know your family denials like height of your father, mother and grand parents. Such characteristics also get transferred genetically.

3. You can play games like hockey to inhibit further increase in height. Weight lifting also helps in the same.

Lastly, do not feel bad about whatever you have naturally. God has designed with a special purpose and believe in your self.
